Outlier-Doublebag-Gear-Patrol Outlier Doublebag

Second side expands; first side shrinks. Gross clothes don’t touch fresh clothes. Makes laundry easy. An obsessive’s dream bag. (It’s out of stock currently, but keep an eye out.)

This volume tracks her career — referred to as “iconic” — in photos, texts and drawings. $50
